Zitz, Rash and Pimple are back as the Battletoads release date is revealed for 20th August 2020.
A new trailer has dropped for Rare’s upcoming 3-player brawler – confirming the Battletoads release date for Xbox One and PC. Thankfully, for those looking for some over-the-top action will only have to wait until later this month.
The new trailer is very reminiscent of a Saturday morning cartoon. It shows our three amphibian heroes Zitz, Rash and Pimple jumping into action. This aesthetic carries across into the gameplay, with characters employing squash, stretch and smear techniques to give the game an energetic style.
While the style of the game is somewhat removed from the NES and Mega Drive originals. It is clear that this new Battletoads channels the spirit of those early 90s titles with our heroes’ limbs comically transforming into a range of comical items such as anvils, and even arcade machines, as they beat their opponents into submission.
As is now the norm for a first party Microsoft release. Battletoads will be releasing on Game Pass on launch day, and will be available for both Xbox One and PC. This means Game Pass subscribers will be able to download and play for no additional cost.
Battletoads release on 20th August 2020 on Xbox One and Windows 10. You can purchase the game digitally from the Microsoft Store, or play it as part of Microsoft’s Game Pass subscription.
They look like nockoff mutant turtles.
